Michelin CrossClimate tyres for a Kia Rio - can you recommend them?

My sister has a top of the range 2014 Kia Rio. She likes the car but has always complained about the ride and tyre noise. She is now disappointed with the tyre wear (Continental) and needs a replacement set. When we discussed this I said that Michelin Cross Climates were the answer and that you recommend them. She tried to buy them but, unfortunately, they are not available in the required size, 205 45 17 84 V. Do you think Michelin will expand the range to include sizes like this or is there another tyre you could recommend for lower noise and better ride?

I simply can't get into the Michelin Cross Climate Tyres site that lists all the sizes. Try Googling Michelin Cross Climate tomorrow. They do them in a very similar size.
